I'm obsessed with them at the moment.

So far I've turned this

into these.

And I've cast on (and ripped out) another two pairs.

I've decided that I need to challenge myself a bit more now though, so I'm itching to cast on one of these patterns also - bmp and Vellamo

I'll probably go with Vellamo.

I've got some variegated sock yarn that I just can't find a good pattern for (hence the ripping out!) so I'm thinking it might look good broken up with some black.

I'm not sure I'll have a finished pair of socks by the end of March, but I'm trying!

Ooh, they're pretty!
Do you actually wear them? I knitted 1 sock last year & still haven't even cast on the 2nd one because I'm wondering if I'll ever actually wear them.

thanks Mel :)

I do wear them, but only to work really. They go nicely with my work shoes under pants. Just a bit of sock poking out! They are too nice to wear with sneakers, but I think with the weather cooling down I'll wear them more as I wear my thongs less.

they look lovely! Beautiful colour for that pattern too. I’ve had Bmp on my to-do list every since I started making socks. I reckon I’m gonna give them a go this year too!
